Our visit to Belinger Rose was just what we needed for a quick getaway. The house is beautiful. The room was very big and comfortable. The jacuzzi tub and I roomgas fireplace added extra touches for relaxation and ambiance. Chris and Leon were gracious and wonderful. We will be back.

THE most amazing place

Chris and Leon are the BEST hosts ever! They really extended themselves to us. I recommend the Bellinger Rose with enthusiasm!!!

Great Hosts, Cute Pets, Hot Tubs... (well, just 1 hot tub..)

Hi Newcomers, and Double-Hi Leon and Chris (the hosts)! The tiny town and huge hearts of our hosts were both well-welcomed in our stay at the Bellinger Rose! OH!!!! and Triple-Hi to the Kitties!! Ashley the puppy was shy and adorable but the Kitties were our roommates when we left the door open for them. We loved the fireplace in our room (we stayed in the Crimson Rose room), the TV, and taking a short walk downstairs to the awesome hot tub (so many buttons!!). The amenities definitely talked us into more downtime inside than we were planning on but that shouldn't stop you from visiting the 2 ski areas within a 40 minute drive, or the Cooperstown breweries/distillery. Our hosts were also wonderful! It seems like they never get bored of talking to us strangers. Leon also recommended a restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner and called ahead of time for a reservation which was just the beginning of their hospitality. Breakfast was delicious and fresh every morning, and it was all made to order. Chris made the muffins herself ...order the muffins... We would definitely visit again!

We'd stay with you anytime! thank you so much Chris!

I would love to stay again! Thank you for running such a gem of a B&B! Thank you for accommodating our crazy rush in and out need starting on Saturday. Breakfast was great with the other guests on Sunday morning, it was sad to have to leave would have enjoyed getting a massage, maybe next time! Your cats are so well behaved and delightful to be around also!

We stayed at this charming B & B on our trek through NE as we toured the fall colors tour of up state NY, VT, NH and ME. This was a restful enjoyable stay and besides the owners who opend their home to us we met a very nice younger couple from Germany. A great place to stay! Ed & Karla from AZ

An Excellent Stay

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay at the Bellinger Rose during our recent cycling vacation. Chris made us feel very welcome and even offered to shuttle us to dinner. The house is beautifully decorated and the breakfast was delicious.

A great place to stay

We stayed one night at the Bellinger Rose Bed and Breakfast while in the area for a wedding. Chris and Leon were gracious,attentive hosts and have done an outstanding job of refurbishing their home into a beautiful Victorian period property. Our room was attractive, cozy and well appointed. We filled out a menu for our breakfast choices and the meal was delicious and bountiful, served in a lovely dining room. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this wonderful B&B. Mike & Andrea

Leon and Chris were very accomodating hosts! The massage by Chris was wonderfully relaxing. Breakfast was made to order and was simply delicious. Room was clean and very cozy. What else could one ask for?

We recently bicycled across the Erie Canal and Bellinger Rose was a luxurious stop for us on our ride. Leon drove us to a restaurant for dinner, too. A beautiful home with gracious hosts.
